Paul Hanagan rides Kimbali for Richard Fahey but Laura Barry's mount Our Boy Jack has the better recent form and can finish ahead of his stablemate. But he'll have to be at his very best to prevent MARFORD MISSILE from completing his hat-trick. Tom Dascombe's gelding has found his level and had a bit more in hand than the official margin suggests when winning a seller at Leicester two weeks ago. Lisiere drops into this grade for the first time but her stamina may be stretched over this trip on this stiff track.
